Andrea Cilento, LCSW

Founder & Psychotherapist

 

 

Who you are and what you have experienced is unique, and so will be your path to healing. I use an integrative, individualized approach. Whether you are looking for a short-term treatment to resolve a specific problem in your life, or longer-term therapy to delve into deeper issues, together we will develop a treatment plan that best meets your needs. My approach draws from the following types of therapy:

Psychotherapist

At times in life, we find ourselves overwhelmed; in states of persistent mental or emotional distress, stuck in patterns that no longer serve us, and questioning which path best serves us. With greater consciousness of our patterns of thought, feeling and behavior, we can develop the capacity to meet these moments with the wisdom of our whole selves. By connecting more fully to our emotions, we can access our innate healing process and move towards greater integration. In honoring your unique story, we can explore how life’s suffering may be pointing you towards greater wholeness and a life of meaning.

I believe all people deserve respect and care and I provide a safe, non-judgmental, and compassionate space where you can show up however you are. I integrate a variety of lenses including relational, psychodynamic, and somatic approaches all within the context of trauma-informed care. I am a Level 1 AEDP Therapist.  Working collaboratively, we will sort through the challenges and symptoms you are experiencing and explore the questions you are holding.

Clinical and Social Work Experience

I also work as a therapist at the LGBT Center’s Outpatient Substance Use Program. Prior to training as a therapist, I spent the bulk of my career working internationally in humanitarian and refugee assistance.

 

I’ve worked with diverse populations facing a range of concerns, such as anxiety, depression, substance use and Chemsex, and trauma; as well as issues related to sexual and gender identity, body image and relationships of all kinds. I have specific experience with the LGBTQIA+ community and a professional background that has acquainted me with the unique challenges of working internationally in crisis and conflict zones.
